(really like this version in and of itself but also reminds me of a conversation I had once with the mother of my then girlfriend)

(I always have time for the boss and his music tends to lend itself really well to good cover versions)

This is one of my favorite songs of all time partly just because it's so beautiful with an interesting narrative but also because its the first song I ever heard where a woman was singing about loving another woman "Remember me to my love, I'll know I'll miss her" I didn't know then that it was a cover or that it was originally written and sung by a man. I was thirteen when I first heard it and fell in love with it and I forgot the name of the band and the name of the song. I just remembered forever snatches of the lyrics and when the internet became a place that made searches with such scant info possible I refound and completely fell in love with the Cowboy junkies.

I don't know if this counts as a cover as folk songs are traditionally "reworked" or reinterpreted" but I love it anyway and the whole album (Blackout) blew me away.

This isn't technicaly a cover either as the original artist performs on it but it is a beautiful reworking of an already beautiful song
